Bitdefender Home Scanner – Scan for Weaknesses and Backdoors into Your Home Network
Review by on
A lot of devices in your home are connected to the internet: your gaming PC, your smartphone, tablet or 2-in-1, your smart TV, your printer, maybe even your fridge. If one of these devices is vulnerable, a hacker might exploit that vulnerability and break into your home network. So, the question that naturally comes up is "are you sure all your internet-connected devices are safe?" Followed up by another question, mainly "are you sure there are no weaknesses or hidden backdoors into your home network?"

Romanian security company BitDefender has a tool that can provide an answer to all the questions mentioned above: Bitdefender Home Scanner will scan your home network, identify all the devices that are connected to it, and tell you which ones are safe and which ones are at risk. If a device is flagged as "potentially at risk," Bitdefender Home Scanner will list the vulnerability (or vulnerabilities) it uncovered, will explain what could happen if a hacker where to exploit that vulnerability, will provide guidance on how to fix the problem, and it will recommend Bitdefender Box, a piece of hardware that protects all the devices on your network).

Bitdefender Home Scanner’s minimum system requirements are: dual core 1.6GHz processor, at least 1GB of RAM, and 300MB of free storage space. The recommended system requirements are: Intel Core 2 Dup 2GHz processor or better, 2GB of RAM or more, and 300MB of free storage space. Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8 or 8.1, and Windows 10 are supported. The steps you must go through to install Bitdefender Home Scanner on a Windows PC are presented in the Quick Look video that accompanies this article.

The following entries are listed on the sidebar on Bitdefender Home Scanner’s interface:
Home Scanner – scan your home network and find out if any connected device is at risk.
Notifications – lists all the devices that are connected to your network.
About – a standard About menu that needs no description.
My Account – you will have to sign up and log into your Bitdefender account to get started with this application,
Help & Support – launches your default browser and takes you to the official Bitdefender Home Scanner webpage on Bitdefender.com.

Please not that Bitdefender Home Scanner does not protect your network against viruses or attacks.

Bitdefender Home Scanner is free software – just like these other free BitDefender applications.

Go get Bitdefender Home Scanner and find out if your internet-connected devices are at risk. The bad guys might use this vulnerable device to hack into your network, and I’m sure you don’t want that!

Pros
Bitdefender Home Scanner’s system requirements are quite low and installing it on a Windows PC is a simple enough task (see the Quick Look video). Bitdefender Home Scanner scans your home network, detects all connected devices, and tells you if they’re vulnerable or not. Bitdefender Home Scanner will bring up a notification whenever a new device connects to the network. Bitdefender Home Scanner is free software.

Cons
You need to have a Bitdefender account to use this application. There’s no Exit or Close button that you could use to close this application. Your printer might print out some gibberish whenever it’s scanned.
